Angela Smith is on page 22793 of Soft Deadlines: “How are you, my boy?” asked Ursula. “And who is this budding little witch?”

Naomi was flattered and impressed that Ursula could tell she was a witch. “How can you tell?” she asked. “Do I have an aura?”

Ursula giggled and winked at Duncan. “Oh, she’s adorable.” She reached forward and took Naomi by the hand pulling her forward. “Silly dear, you are in the company of the best demon I know. What else would you be?”

“And that's exactly why I have to ban you,” she said. “You've gotten so hooked on death that you've closed everything else down. The Bitter Suites can't be responsible for suicide abuse.” Azrael stood up, signaling the interview was over.”
